12 Desserts to Help Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth - Low Carb & Gluten Free

With the upcoming summertime holidays approaching, along with cookouts and other gatherings, I thought I'd share a few more low carb dessert ideas. Links to the recipes are below each photo and clicking on them will take you to the recipe posts. I've been going back through my archives recently and realize that I had a lot more dessert recipes than I remembered. Most of them are very easy to make and some don't require any baking at all (which is always nice in the hot summer months). I hope you find some ideas to help make your get togethers a little bit sweeter. Enjoy!

Wow! Look at you go! :-) I don't know how, but I *somehow* missed a couple of these. Apple Cinnamon Walnut Rolls ... KA-BOOM is right! And Pumpkin Walnut Spice Muffin ... I think I'll go make one right now. As far as I'm concerned, every season is Pumpkin Season. ;-)

Hi CyberSis,

I may just make one for my breakfast this morning! It's funny though, as I'm going back through archives recently, I am finding quite a few things I forgot about! :-)

Hi Alice,

Thanks so much! Hope you are enjoying your journey going back through my blog...I assume that means you began "current" and going backward. Funny as I go back through my archives I find so many things I had forgotten about! (hugs back at you)! :-)
